Kozyrev Warns NATO

MOSCOW () -- Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev said Thursday that a quick expansion of NATO by acceptance of new central and eastern European members would threaten a "most serious destabilization in Europe."

"In my view, that would be a victory of the politics of force over the politics of reason," Kozyrev told NATO's visiting deputy secretary-general for political issues, Gerhardt von Moltke.
